“Feast of Porcelain”

Curated by Almarie Pelser

 

Art in the Forest at Constantia Nek welcomes you to enjoy our current porcelain group exhibition in our gallery.

 

Open to the public from Thursday 13 October until 13 November 2011.

Porcelain is a complicated and mysterious medium- a type of clay defined by its composition. Its intriguing history of secrets and espionage spanning hundreds of years fuels the present day confusion about this delicate looking material. It is a magical, alchemical clay that has the property of translucency when fired. It therefore is a natural companion to light, natural sunlight or candle light and truly comes alive when seen in this relationship.
